This is what happens when you throw all of your favorite pieces for fall into one outfit:) I’ve had several of these pieces that I snagged on major sale over the past several months that I’ve been waiting to share with you. Otherwise, I would’ve had a heatstroke trying to wear them. But the wait is over!
Cardigan: Target // Top: BP via Nordstrom (similar, similar) // Leggings: VS Pink (similar) // Bangles: c/o KCK Bangles // Tote: BP via Nordstrom // Flats: Target–on sale for $19.99! // Earrings: Baublebar // Lips: LipSense in Hazelnut
The basic pieces of this outfit are the striped tunic top and the black leggings. Both are fall staples for me because together, they look so put together, but are also majorly comfortable! This pair of leggings is one of my two favorite pairs–I’ve linked both above though.
I also threw on my new leopard print cardigan for some added chic (my mom said I didn’t match–she’s not a fan of the pattern mixing.haha). Cardigans are so hot this year, and the longer, the better. This one is a juniors size, so be sure to size up for a good fit. And they just happened to match up my cognac lace-up flats. Lace-up flats are THE SHOE of the season. I picked up this pair in cognac, and it offsets well against the black. My mother-in-law said she had a pair of lace-up shoes like them in the 70s, so that just goes to show you that everything really does cycle.
And because I like a little something unexpected with my outfits, I added my new blue Flamenco Drop earrings from Baublebar and my blue tote. It’s those unexpected pieces that make the outfit. Don’t be afraid to mix in random pieces that look like they have no business being added to your outfit–that’s what makes fashion fun! And, truth be told, I got my earrings in the mail on Friday evening and couldn’t wait to wear them. I’ve had my eye on them for several months, and finally pulled the trigger when Baublebar had a 25% sale. Sometimes you just have to wait out the good stuff.
My lip color is LipSense in Hazelnut with Glossy gloss. I’m having a LipSense party with Becky from BYBMG, so if you’re interested in learning more, you can join the party here.
Hope y’all had a great weekend!
Nice to meet you!
